FortiClient Room for Improvement

Joel Sadomba
IT Engineer at BAZ
I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly. For instance, if I want to authorize a user to access a certain website, it should be easy for that user to edit those websites on the exempted list. But sometimes I find that my users can't do that when I am not at the office. Due to the fact that some of our users operate remotely, it sometimes happen that they can't access a specific website. Then I have to go through all the websites, or dive into the users machine just so that I can change the configuration. I therefore think it should be a little bit easier for a user to add a certain website to the exempted list. Something else that should be worked on, is the compatibility issues between versions 6.2 and 6.0, because it is not easy to upgrade your firewall to the latest version with admin. If you want to upgrade, you need a hardware change. View full review »

We had some issues using IPsec as a remote tunnel protocol and we had to change those configurations from IPsec to SSL. That was the only issue we had with FortiClient during the four years we used it. Everybody else is doing AI, machine learning, self-healing, next-generation features. They should incorporate more next-generation features. View full review »

Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this. Currently, we are having issues where the antivirus is blocking an item, but it is almost impossible to disable the antivirus. If the user wants to lift these priveledges they can't. Some options are not changeable. You cannot switch off a blockage even temporarily. I understand why it is like that, but I would like to give less control to these important processes because right now it is very complicated to turn off the protection even for testing purposes.

I haven't found that that solution does anything amazing. There is nothing special about it. It works trouble free just like any other client. View full review »

I'm hoping they change the management system. The management is no longer applicable for us, so I want that to go back to the way it was. View full review »
